I don't even know where to begin...

...so I'll just begin at the easiest. Well, maybe not the easiest but the most lived every day.

Amelia :)

She's so big. And there's so much. It drives me crazy that I haven't been able to record anything for over a month. It's hard not having a computer at my fingertips. But I will do my best to recap.
It took about two weeks after Amelia's birthday to be able to walk well on her own. Once she figured out the basics, there was no stopping her. Now she's getting faster. She's learning to walk fast on her tip toes, she squeals as she's on the run, and she walks just to walk, from room to room. It's so cute.
She has 8 teeth that are in. The four front and bottom, and now she's working on three molars. I can't even imagine how bad it hurts. I should have seen it coming when she had a drippy nose with nothing else to declare a cold was on it's way.
She signs "please" like a pro for anything she would like to have. Even when I don't know what it is that she wants. Now I'm trying to add new signs to help her communicate what it is that she wants.
Her hair is super curly and eyes are still blue and lashes to Timbuktu. She's ticklish, and has the sweetest laugh, loves water and animals.

On my birthday, a really good friend of mine reconnected with me. Since then, we've been chatting and I even got to go visit her two weekends ago. It was like old times, like not a day, or too many years, had passed.
While visiting her, I got to see my old home and school. The school looked exactly the same but the house looked, well, better than when we lived there. A guy was sitting on the porch so I had to ask him to get a picture. That was a little weird but, hey, I wanted the picture.

Also, my friend talked to me about her diet where she counts calories. I had never really thought about it and didn't really think it could or would work for me. But I found an app for the iPhone and have been on it for a week and 2 days. I incorporated The Maker's Diet with counting calories and voila! I have already lost 3.8 pounds. Not too shabby... or flabby ;)

Anyway, hopefully it won't be so long before I can get on here again. I hope you all have a good night!
